Solskjaer reveals he has invited Scholes to visit him after brief Oldham stint

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed he has invited Paul Scholes to visit him at Old Trafford after his former teammate left his position as manager of Oldham Athletic.

Former Manchester United midfielder Scholes resigned from his position at the League Two club yesterday, just 31 days after his appointment as manager.

The 44-year-old took over boyhood club Oldham in his first managerial position on February 11, but this week left the role, stating ‘it has become he clear he would be unable to operate as he had ‘intended or was led to believe prior to taking the role.’

Speaking on Scholes’ departure from Boundary Park, Solskjaer said  ‘he’s probably got his reasons’ and revealed he had invited Scholes to visit him.

“He’s probably got his reasons why he left, so you’ve gotta ask him,” Solskjaer said in his pre-match press conference.

“He’s invited here if he wants to come and have a little chat about it.

“We’ve texted and it didn’t work out, that’s just management.”
